Displaying Helmets

Postby MrKutzzy » Sat Aug 11, 2018 11:33 am

So this morning my first star wars helmet arrived in the post , A new hope stormtrooper helmet from David at sw movie props.
Really chuffed with it :D Ive always wanted a stormy helmet since i was a nipper but never got round to it till now.
How do you guys display yours ?? Id like a acrylic case for it maybe .... Does GW do cases for helmets ? im not sure .
Advive and feedback appreciated.

Cheers Dave :D

Hi mate - we don't have cases for helmets right now

One of the best (and cheapest) ways I have seen people display them is to get either an upright toilet roll or kitchen roll holder - stick a tennis ball on the end and maybe some decals on the bottom

Thats not a bad idea but being a smoker i wanted to case it so its easier to dust off and display with my other star wars items.
I must add i only smoke in one room of my house which has no star wars to ruin :lol:

Shame you dont do a case for them , I was looking at cases for NFL helmets or F1 .... They look suitable .

Cheers
